A List of Mathematical Topics

These are the topics covered in a variety of geology courses and are organized by the math courses where students first experience them. This list may be surprising to some geoscientists as we often assume that they have experienced topics before they ever reach our classes.

High School

Calculus I

Calculus II

Calculus III

Linear Algebra



Differential Equations

Computer Science

Not covered in most math classes
